Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink looks set to take over at Loftus Road on Friday morning and Neil Warnock says there is no reason why the Chelsea legend can’t take QPR to a play-off place.
Rangers left it late to earn a 1-0 win at Reading thanks to captain Nedum Onouha’s 90th-minute header which means Warnock steps down from the hot seat having won his last two games by that same scoreline.
The 67-year-old has tightened Rangers up at the back and yet again they looked like a solid outfit against the Royals even though they lacked a cutting edge without a recognised frontman.
And after drying out from his soaking on the touchline Warnock explained that Hasselbaink, who has taken Burton from League Two to the top of League One, can drive Rangers on in a wide open divisoion.
“There is no reason why he can’t be successful,” Warnock explained. “He has got to relish this talented squad and put his stamp on it.
“I said before this match that there is no reason why we can’t go into the play-offs and go up because we haven’t started going yet.
“It’s a wide open, but difficult league.”
